Laser dentistry is the modern way to clean your smile and with the laser dental clinic in Vancouver, you can have the perfect smile using laser treatment for teeth cleaning. A laser dental clinic can also help treat gingivitis and periodontal disease.

Ocean Front Dental recommends laser dentistry if you are in the early stages of gum disease. This requires deep cleaning of the four quadrants in your mouth. After your gums are numbed, Dr. Seddon, General Dentist,  will clean the roots of the teeth just below your gum line to remove plaque and tartar, also known as calculus. Called root planing and scaling this laser treatment for teeth cleaning can help reduce the risk of gingivitis and the more serious periodontal disease. Root planing and scaling stop infection from progressing. However, laser treatment for teeth cleaning cannot reverse bone or collagen loss. Bacteria can still collect allowing germs and bacteria to attack again. If you have serious periodontal disease, you may need laser gum surgery for the perfect smile.

Laser dentistry is also used for:

  • Tooth decay-Dentists use laser to remove tooth decay and to prepare the enamel for filling
  • Gum disease-Lasers can be used to reshape your gums and to remove bacteria during a root canal therapy procedure
  • Lesion Removal and Biopsy-Dental lasers can also be used to remove tissue. Known as a biopsy the tissue is removed so that it can be checked for cancer. Lasers can also be used to relieve canker sore pain and to remove mouth lesions

Compared to traditional dental drills, lasers for teeth cleaning will cause less pain and may reduce the need for anesthetic. Lasers for teeth cleaning can also help reduce dental anxiety and dental fear. Laser dentistry can also minimize swelling and bleeding and will help preserve the healthy structure of the tooth.
